Participate in YOU ARE HERE, Lewisham People's Day (Saturday 7 July 2018)

Lewisham People’s Day started 34 years ago and has grown to be one of south east London’s biggest free festivals. This unique community festival with seven stages of live music, dance, circus, visual arts and comedy welcomes over 1,000 performers, 150 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors every year.

This year People’s Day will take place on Saturday 7 July from 12-8pm at Mountsfield Park, Catford, SE6 1AN.

'YOU ARE HERE' They would like to hear from performance and visual artists around the curation of a creative space at Peoples Day. They are looking for innovative, entertaining and engaging work to showcase and exciting ideas on how visitors could be impacted and potentially participate in installations, artwork being created, immersive theatre or as an audience to your exciting work. There will be a dedicated space on the bandstand and a workshop area and are open to ideas around the use of the whole site. They aim to include LGBTQ artists, disabled artists and older artists.

There will be opportunities for artists involved to benefit from organised networking and space on a funding workshop event with Art Council for Grants for the Arts advice. Funding is available for performers and they can offer technical support with their production partners Continental Drifts.
